How to Catch a Mouse in a Mansion — Friday W2

Take a look at the lives of the rich:

“The other day we saw a mouse in the house. Before, I would have just gotten a broom and gotten rid of the thing. But now things are different. I e-mailed the household manager. He called the vendor, a pest-control firm, and the pest-control firm caught the mouse. Then the household manager directed two other staff members to dispose of the mouse. That’s five people to catch a mouse, instead of a broom. It all seemed normal at the time. But then I thought about it, and I wondered, how did our lives get like this?”
